What is the true meaning of NOS? New old stock? New over seas? Other?

Actually I think it means poor casting, poor plating, and poor painting but still in the GM blue and white box.

You may also hear new original stock or new obsolete stock used.  New old stock is the more common term though.

You could add drug around flea markets for 30 years too.

Wouldn't "New Original Stock" be more appropriate and less contradictory?

No.  It was supposed to be stuff that was made in the past, hence "old stock".  But not used "new".

One of the most broadly defined terms around. Dealers refer to currently available GM parts as NOS. They may have been manufactured last month.

Years ago when we had the Camaro business I was working on a trade that was to include an "NOS" '67 Chevelle blinker tach, a big deal at the time. I mentioned that it would have to be checked to ensure it worked. The guy tells me it has been in his car for 6 months, works fine. I pointed out that it was now a used tach and he says "Nope, still have the box."

I think the intention and/or by definition, NOS refers to items or goods produced back in the day that were never sold. The problem is that companies are now using this term to peddle their goods hoping that buyers won't identify with their false advertising. Another problem is that it works...I've fallen victim but I've learned from my mistakes, especially when it deals in $$$.

Sorry Bill...we posted at the same time...liked yours better.  Wink

Nitrous Oxide Systems! Spray the crap out of it.

New Old Stock, old or obselent stock that dealers and parts depots at one time were begging to get rid of and now is what a mint. After it quit moving at retail or became discontinued they were dying to unload the stuff.

The owner of the business was a former Chevrolet dealer so of course he knew lots of dealers. Much of the NOS around is junk. We once bought maybe a hundred boxes of NOS Chevy floor mats from a local stash. Mostly full-size bench-seat mats in red, blue, green; obviously picked through. Still worth the $5/box but lots of heavy lifting. Later on he cooked up a deal with a traveling GM service rep. This guy would be at 2-3 dealers every week and would buy all the non-returnable parts he could find. More junk: '73-'77 bumper guards, tie rod ends, odd exhaust parts, take-off manual steering gears. We must have had 50 diverter valves, none for HP engines. We had cases of recall engine mount cable kits. Lots of switches: headlamp, wipers, ignition.

So if you hear of a pile, tread cautiously. Probably picked several times by guys that know more than you. Lots of people chasing the stuff for years. They all fantasize about the holy grail of NOS: a Chevy dealer that closed in '69 and hasn't been touched since-still a car on the showroom floor. It will go down someday and make headlines. Don't ask.

I thought that was the goal, besides I know a guy.

One of my partners dad had a Chrysler/Plymouth/Dodge dealership from the early 60s through the mid 70s. When they closed it he toke the parts department to his warehouse. One day I am going to get in there and have a blast.

99% of the stuff advertised by eBay sellers as "NOS" (New Old Stock) isn't; it's NORS (New Old Replacement Stock). Those new to the hobby get mesmerized by the "NOS" term, buy the stuff, then find out it isn't quite like an original part and it was made last year. You have to know what you're looking for, unless you're building a "catalog car".

The "old" often means different things to buyers than it does to sellers. Buyers may expect a perfect original part, but some sellers expect easy money from  some sucker. As usual, Buyer be very aware.
